Books are in stock! (finally)

1 comment

Great news! The books just arrived about 30 minutes ago. 2000 pounds of mecha book goodness! I'll start packing and shipping ASAP. basic orders will go out first for expedience, and then I'll work on orders that need sketches.

I still need one address from backer DS99. If you read this, please send me your address!

Thanks to all of you and Kickstarter, most of the printing costs were covered. I still need to sell about 100 books at full price to break even. For comparison, I still need to sell about 40 copies of Mecha Zone 2 to break even and that book has been selling for about a year.

You can help by sharing this link to my online store http://mechazone.bigcartel.com/

Here are a few photos to get your oil pumping!

    I have some XL sized Mecha Zone shirts available as rewards. I made them for the 2010 New York Comic Con but didn't wear them (I have a 3rd that I do wear.) You get one shirt, a limited edition print along with a signed copy of the final book, Mecha Zone 1.5, and a signed copy of my other book, Mecha Zone 2. The shirt is just like the one I am wearing in my profile image (lower right corner) and it also says "Mecha Zone" on the back. The front image is the rough sketch for the A-10 mech that is on the cover of Mecha Zone 2. International backers please add $15 for shipping.
